Never leave dogs or kids in the car!
Above is a handy chart to see how hot it gets inside a car when the sun is out. Cracking a window is NOT enough! Sometimes the pictures don't show up to those who receive the blog posts in email form, for those of you who can't see the chart here's the breakdown:
When it's 75 outside, within minutes it will be 118 in your car.
When it's 81 outside, it will be 138 in your car.
When it's 94 outside, it will be 145 in your car.
If you can't sit in your car with the A/C off, your kids and pets certainly can't. Be sun safe!
